Facebook Tweaks News Feed To Account For Time Spent On Stories

File this Facebook News Feed change into the obvious folder. Facebook announced today that it will start including time spent on stories as a ranking factor for what it shows people visiting the social network.The News Feed algorithm is famously complicated, but liking, commenting and sharing have always been major factors in determining the mix. Now the company is adding time spent, after its research showed that people don’t always like or comment on stories that they find meaningful.For instance, serious current events. Or a friend’s photo post about a recent trip. The new ranking signal will take into account how long people spend on those posts, and surface more like them compared to posts that receive less attention.Facebook software engineers Ansha Yu and Sami Tas explained more in a blog post:When talking to people about the way they use their News Feed, we’ve found that it’s not as simple as just measuring the number of seconds you spend on each story to understand if that pi…

For over a decade, Google has successfully convinced various governments that it is censoring its search results when it actually wasn’t. Finally, the governments have figured this out. Now that the myth is exposed, both Google and governments finally have to deal with the hard decisions of censorship.This week, a court ruling in Canada and a privacy regulator in France are demanding that Google censor its search results worldwide, not just within versions of Google that the company runs for those countries.Both of these bodies have been unconvinced that Google’s censorship on only country-specific versions of Google is sufficient. That’s because both understand that it’s not difficult to get around such censorship. That’s a change from how past governments have viewed things, in particular China.Let’s explore some of that past history, as well as the technical situation. That’s important to the implementation of these rulings. Don’t worry. It’s not too The World…
